From the teacher's notes

"The point of the play is to show the predicament of a working class girl, not intellectual, but lively and cruious, who throughout childhood, in common with her brother, has been allowed to explore and appreciate the physical world about her: football - its spectacle and drama - living in a seaport, the wonder of the wider world - the sea and ships. Her relationship with her family has been tolerant, open hearted and affectionate, but, at the subtle point of her life when she is moving out of childhood, all the pressures are brought to bear to make her conform to the more usually accepted, but for her, circumscribing rituals of her environemnt. At the end of the play she is brought, for the first time in her life, to the realisation that she has been prevented from doing something she wanted simply because she is a girl." - Scene teacher's notes summer 1978 p.12.
